Campout details:

Our basecamp for the weekend will be at Marble Mountain Sno Park. This is a paved parking lot with areas close by ideal for dispersed camping. There is also ample space for RVs and campers. However, no electricity or water on site. Be prepared and bring everything that you need. 

Bathroom – 2 vault toilets (bring toilet paper!).

PET (DOG) OWNERS: If you bring your pet, know that you cannot leave them unattended at the basecamp. Due to the steep hillside and narrow terrain of the trail, we DO NOT recommend that they join you while working on the trail.
